Evocative and passionately written, this debut short story collection--a finalist for Canada''s Governor General''s Award--explores emotional and physical absences, the ways in which people leave and are left, and whether it''s ever possible to move on.
From the Publisher:
Presents a collection of short stories that explore emotional and physical absences, including tales about an ice-cream scooper named after Nina Simone and a fortune-teller who fails to predict her own daughter's heartbreak.
Annotation:
A writer disappears. Memories recedes. Women leave husbands, men lose money, a psychic misses the future that's nearest to her. These themes and more are the subject of Deborah Willis's VANISHING AND OTHER STORIES. The title tale focuses on the works of an author whose mysterious absence raises questions about his pages. Willis uses a spare style to investigate the gaps or departures that create sadness and distance in everyday life. Willis's debut collection, VANISHING AND OTHER STORIES was named one of Toronto Globe and Mail's Best Books of 2009.A writer disappears. Memories recedes.
